Title: A Little Warmth on a Cold Night

Artist: Kathy Morrison

Medium: Watercolor

Dimensions: 16" x 13"

Animal Depicted: Flir

The call came in at the end of the workday. A truck driver stopped in a park to take a break when he saw a little brown puppy in a tub on top of a trash can. He had to get back on the road so he called us and we headed over to get the little guy.

But when we got there, the sun had set and the park was pitch black. We found the tub on top of the trash can, but the puppy was gone. Did someone grab the puppy in the short time it took us to get here? Did he jump out and run? Did someone lift him out of the tub, set him "free," and leave? This was an extremely frustrating situation to be in. Donna got the FLIR camera out of the rescue Jeep. She powered it on and used it as her eyes as she scoured the area of the park he was originally in. And lo and behold, deep in the leaves, a little soul showed up on the screen. She climbed in with her flashlight and still almost didn't see him, he blended right in with his surroundings. But she saw his little eyes look up and was able to rescue him.

As soon as she picked him up, she knew something was wrong. He wasn't a healthy puppy. In fact, he was very sick and needed help. He immediately tested positive for parvovirus, a common yet very deadly disease puppies can get when they are not vaccinated. He was lethargic, vomiting, and had a high fever, with absolutely no appetite. It was a scary several days.

Donna and the staff fought for him until he could fight for himself.

...and this little puppy we named Flir FOUGHT FOR HIS LIFE - AND WON!

Flir made a complete recovery and has been adopted. Happiest beginnings, pretty boy!
